Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Avery lost her parents in an accident when she was ten. Her aunt Caroline took her in and raised her. Now Caroline is fighting for her life as cancer takes over her body. Avery can’t lose the only person she has left.

Caroline refuses to let Avery feel guilt and put her life on hold any more than she already has. So the monthly night out with friends is a must for Avery. She goes out dancing and forgets all her problems.

Lately there has been a strange man with a scarred face that watches her closely. He creeps Avery and her friends out. Things start to change when she dances with him one night. Then she notices him outside the club when a man is stabbed. She realizes who he is.

Her fear spikes when he shows up in her living room. He is there to make her a deal. Little does she know what she is getting involved with when she agrees to give him a week.

The storyline of this book was interesting. The author created a unique spin on death. Brennus was a fascinating character. I like the past that the author created for him. I kept thinking as I read this that I wish it was a longer story. I would have liked to delve into his character more and really learn what he has been doing for the last few centuries. He was arrogant and vulnerable, definitely a complex character.

Avery, on the other hand, annoyed me. She was a spoiled child that grew into an adult that refused to think for herself. She was a bit self-absorbed which sounds contradicting, but she would tend to focus on how things affected her. She tried to live her aunt Caroline’s life. It drove me crazy. Then she lied to Brennus. She would turn into a childish brat that lived in an adult woman’s body. Ugh get over yourself was usually my response. I give this book a 3 out of 5.
